Q: My TFSA has too many holdings (with various weightings from 3 to 13%), and there appear to be some good buying opportunities at the moment with some of these. I quite like all of these stocks and need some help identifying which 5 or 6 to sell and which 5 or 6 to buy with sale proceeds (those which have been most punished for no good reason and fundamentals are still sound).


So far all I’ve come up with is

One on the chopping block: cleanup small position: MMX – also it strikes me as neither a growth nor income stock.

Definite keepers: ATA, ENPH, TFI, WSP (all seem to be thriving)

Q: Recently PZD - the Invesco Cleantech ETF was changed to ERTH - the Invesco MSCI Sustainable Future ETF. PZD almost all Tech and Industrials whereas ERTH has a similar weighting in Industrials but only 13% tech and a big chunk in real estate. I bought PZD years as more of a growth ETF and it doesn't seem like ERTH can really fill it's shoes. Can you recommend another ETF similar to PZD? This would be a 6% weighting in my portfolio.

Q: With so much attention on EV’s, questions
related to charging stations - and battery suppliers are becoming more important.

I am looking for a basket of companies in which to invest that 5i believes can benefit from these developments.

As part of this theme I am wondering:
1. Where will people recharge their vehicles?
Will traditional gas stations - including companies like ATD.B and PKI - retrofit some of their gas pumps to charging stations?

2. Who will supply the volume of batteries that are expected to be required? As someone said the other day “ right now Tesla owns the “bakery” ....which gives it a huge competitive advantage over the other potential competitors.

Thanks for your help here.

Q: In RRSP account I sold BEPC to decrease exposure to BEP (10%) and purchased ENPH to diversify. Plan was to hold long term. I see you like NEE and it is more diversified over renewables and pays a dividend. Does it make sense to sell ENPH to buy NEE since I don't really need an additional stock?

Q: Hi team,

With 22 tech stocks weighting some 34% of my portfolio, I assume you would recommend that I rationalize my approach for a better diversification, both in my tech sector and in my portfolio as a whole.

To accomplish that, while keeping a strong growth approach, could you indicate which are, in your view, 1) the « must own » stocks, in order of importance 2) those which could be dropped because of « double emploi » or high risk, 3) those missing to properly cover the tech sector ?

Please feel free to use as many credits as you see fit.

Gratefully yours,

Jacques IDS
